I've just installed the most recent version of the graphical BOINC client for Mac and attached to climateprediction. When starting the screensaver, I see the main BOINC screensaver for a while, then it goes to blank. Changing around the settings for the screensaver so it immediately starts the project screensaver and never goes to blank just causes the main screensaver to be there for two seconds and then going to blank.
Starting the climateprediction graphics from the BOINC manager works fine.
Are there any issues with the climateprediction screensaver on Mac? I have an external monitor attached, on which the main BOINC screensaver is not displayed. Might this cause problems with climateprediction?

Some additional details: The rosetta@home screensaver seems to work ok. However, it is also not displayed on the external screen. Is there a way to display the image on both screens or display it only on the external screen?

Correction: The rosetta screensaver only worked once, now it just displays the BOINC logo and says starting screensaver.
